What types of alterations are exempt from Board review?

The Board does not review cases that involve routine maintenance or replacement of any part of the property using the same design and materials as the original building. The Board also does not review cases in which buildings have been destroyed by fire or other disaster, as long as the reconstruction occurs within a year and is substantially similar to the original building in exterior design, type of use, and size.
